The issue of the quarterly contains an account of the American Revolution in Vermont written by James S. Davidson, who was a president of the Rutland Historical Society and earned a Masters of Arts degree in History from the University of Kansas. Davidson discuses certain individuals, such as Gershom Beach, a blacksmith from Rutland, who took part in the capturing of Fort Ticonderoga by the Green Mountain Boys. Davidson discusses the General Conventions from July 1775 to December 1777, by using records of the Council of Safety, the Governor, and the Council of the State of Vermont. Davidson also talks in detail about the Haldimand Negotiations, taking advantage of public papers of Governor Thomas Chittenden. Davidson’s issue contains interesting photos of Fort Rutland and Fort Ranger.
